Smokey Robinson Art Prints by Shepard Fairey (Onsale Info)

Shepard Fairey and Smokey Robinson have joined forces for a big print release today.  The wording is a bit vague, but here is what is known for sure:  There were two different images created, each in red and gold colorways, and all prints are signed by both Fairey and Robinson.  I BELIEVE the double-portrait piece is going to be released by Smokey himself at SXSW, while the single-portrait will be released online by Obey Giant.  The wording gets confusing though, so I’m not sure if there will be both images at SXSW and both images online, or if they are exclusive to each.  For the online release, the red version is an 18″ x 24″ screenprint, has an edition of 450, and will be $75.  The gold version is an 18″ x 24″ screenprint, has an edition of 100, and will be $125.  They go up today (Thrusday, March 18th) at a random time.  Visit ObeyGiant.com.

  1. The single one is OK if you are a Smokey fan but that double portrait one is plain awful the composition sucks.

    Modern Smokey looks as though he’s laughing at some food or something on the side of OG Smokeys face????

  2. ” haha, nice hair old smokey,”

    “shut yo mouth, modern smokey”

  3. He is one cool cat. The print,, ehhh, not so much. It’ll go nicely next to Big Proof :)

  4. I feel like such a spammer asking this again. But if anyone if going to Flatstock and is willing to pick me up a print could you email me at tb252803@ohio.edu Thanks guys.

    On another note, will he ever change up his style or is are we going to continue getting the same crap over and over again just with different people. Kinda starting to drive me nuts. So for me this print is a big NOPE

  5. Hahahaha. Oh shep… shep shep shep.
    You guys aren’t taking this clown seriously anymore right?
    If you are you’ve arrived late to the joke. Maybe you’ll get it when the punchline changes to ” ‘Shepard Fairey Traces a Smiley Face’ goes on sale tomorrow at obey giant for $500 (blue variant $1000)”. :)

  6. where do i paypal my 2,000 for 2 blue variants? LOL.

  7. @Tony: shit yeah dude that flip will put your kids through college!

  8. It’s up putos.

  9. i do believe these are up on obey site, gold is gonzo though

  10. @ iron jaiden….i noticed the red one was still up earlier today. (good looking bigmuls!) i stared at it and let out a “meh” before closing the browser. not on MY watch, Mr. Fairey.!

  11. I do like it. Sam I am. Smokey is responsible for innumerable offspring.
    Like Shep said, it is worth it for his sig. alone. True. Maybe it will pay for one of my grand-childrens textbooks in 50 years.

  12. Smokey’s fans obviously don’t know about this. I can’t believe the red is still available at $75….
    Once it sells out, you won’t be able to get it for that price anymore

  13. Mr. Cardhawks, do you know what a “troll” is in Internets-speak?

  14. I love Bob Marley, he looks really good in these prints. Is he releasing a new album or something? Legend was great

  15. hahahaha.
